THE GRANDMA who led a Hucknall football team to promotion last season has bossed another outfit to national glory.

Norma Hatfield (57), pictured, has been lauded for her success with Green Dragon, who secured the runners-up spot in the Notts Sunday Morning League’s Premier First Division and will play in the top flight, the Premier Premier Division next term.

Now now ex-PE teacher Norma is celebrating a notable double after leading Mansfield AFC to victory in the National Christian Trophy at The Valley, home of Charlton Athletic.

Mansfield, of the Derby Church League, hammered an outfit from Surrey 5-1. The goals were shared by Kane Matthews (2), Matt Lucas (2) and man-of-the-match Danny Humphreys, who all play for Dragon too.
